Ichobezi Houseboats

Ichobezi Houseboats

The Ichobezi Houseboats is a family run business with a 15 year track record of excellent service and quality. The Ichobezi houseboats allow the guests to experience a safari like no other. The boats cruise along the Chobe River giving guests the opportunity to view the park from a floating lodge. The boats operate within the Chobe National Park where guests can make use of all the activities available, or simply relax and enjoy scenery from their cabins or from the viewing deck.

There are no set itineraries so guests decide when they want to do an activity – we are very flexible. There are also no set departures so guests can join on any day we will take them to where the boat is on that day with a tender boat.

The tender boats are excellent for viewing of wildlife and birdlife. The perfect Photographic opportunities are on the Chobe river. Overnight is spectacular and you are surrounded by the night noises of the Chobe Wildlife.
